The Truth About Jesus Christ & Salvation.

While some might write the fact off as “mere coincidence”, it’s still amazing that not even ONE person in the whole entire world since the time of Christ (that I’m aware of, anyways) has ever referred to Jesus as “the late Jesus Christ” and/or “the late, great Jesus Christ”. Wow….On the other hand, several atheists etc have mocked his name in the last few centuries or so.

But think about it. Why hate or mock or fear something that “doesn’t exist”? That would be the same as me going on a constant rant about the “flying sphagetti monster”. No archaeological evidence, historical evidence/eyewitness accounts, miracles, near-death experiences, actual documented demonic possession (according to psychiatrists, even), dreams/visions, fulfilled bible prophecy concerning the nation of Israel and Jesus, etc can be tied to the NON-EXISTENT “flying spaghetti monster” but yet, all those things can be tied back to Jesus Christ.

So personally, I think those people KNOW Jesus Christ exists, they just don’t want to admit it, since it would force them to acknowledge that heaven and hell and the afterlife exist and that God’s Judgment exists, which would then therefore force them to have to change their lives around, in order to receive forgiveness for their sins, etc.

Some of those self-proclaimed Atheists/Agnostics “hesitantly” admit that Jesus Christ is real, and say things like “well, a *loving* God won’t send someone to hell”. Well, again, not true…..Those poor folks haven’t read John 14:6 in which Jesus Christ said “I am the way, the truth, and the light. No-one comes to the Father except by Me”.

Or how about Matthew 7:13-14 which statesEnter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it”. 

Plus, lets not forget the passages in Revelation 20:12 & 20:15 in the New Testament! God gives some VERY dire warnings about all those who don’t put their faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ! So in short, ALL those who don’t put their faith, trust & love into Jesus Christ before they die will be cast into HELL and/or ETERNAL CONDEMNATION. For ETERNITY. And in hell and/or eternal condemnation, there are NO 2nd chances. NO. WAY. OUT. FOREVER. 

But the sad reality is that many “Christians” will end up eternally condemned, someday! (Yes. You heard me right. CHRISTIANS). “Why is that?”, you may wonder. And the number one reason is because today’s “Jesus” worshiped in the modern-day Christian churches is a NON-BIBLICAL/PAGAN ONE! In fact, I’ll even take it a step further, here. Today’s “Jesus” worshiped in the Christian churches is a COMPLETE MOCKERY of the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ in the bible!

For example:

Today’s modern “Jesus” worshiped in churches: 

  • is worshiped on SUNDAY, venerable worship day of the SUN
  • doesn’t have anything to do with the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Tabernacles, etc.)
  • is celebrated with “Paganized holidays” such as Christmas & Easter
  • seems to have no true “Jewish descent”

The true, BIBLICAL Jesus:

  • was known by his disciples and followers as God in the flesh, the one and only true Messiah
  • celebrated IN and was the EMBODIMENT of the Lord’s 7 Annual Feasts (Passover, Tabernacles, etc.)
  • came from a strong line of “Jewish descent” of King David from his mother’s side
  • was and is worshiped on the true, biblical 7th-day Sabbath, SATURDAY! (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown, remember that a Jewish day begins at sundown the night before!) 

And Jesus had SEVERAL things to say about people who worshiped him in vain! Including but not limited to:

“Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from meMatthew 15:7-9

“Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men” – Isaiah 29:13

The truth is that only a select “few” will receive Eternal Salvation by Jesus Christ Almighty. Because like Matthew 7:13-14 states, the path to life is NARROW. 

I’ve created this Youtube video in an attempt to produce a “visual study” of just what the passage in Matthew 7:13-14 really means! (And true, I wanted to include much more, but I could only fit so much in for a 20 minute video). 

Can A Person Still Be A “Good Person” Without Believing in God?

Oftentimes in our own human vanity, we think we can still be a “good” person, without having to believe in God.

We believe we are a “good” person by our own standards.

But honestly. Have you ever lied? Stolen anything? Sexually lusted after someone? Had sex outside of marriage? Worshipped any other gods (including money, celebrities, political figures, etc.) other than Jesus Christ? Said the Lord’s name in vain? Wanted something that belonged to someone else? Over-ate? Got Angry with or held a grudge against someone? Refused to give to the poor? Flat-out denied the existence of God? Hated someone? Etc?

We may think we are a good person by our “own” standards but according to God’s Word, we are not a “good” person, according to God’s standards.

The truth is, nobody is perfect. Not me, not any preacher of God, not ANY prophets of God. Not one. Except God. God is the ONLY perfect thing in this entire universe. Why? Because he made it.

And since God is perfect and WE are not, God doesn’t need US but WE need HIM! And God loves us SO MUCH that over 2,000 years ago, he put himself into human form (Jesus Christ) by means of a virgin birth and gave mankind the potential for the greatest gift EVER (salvation/forgiveness of sins).

But it’s more like when we go to Hastings and they sometimes have a “get-your-fines-payed-off-for-free-day” or something like that. Well, if we don’t go there to receive our *gift* of not having to pay the fine, then we still have to pay the fine. So it is with God.

If we don’t go to Jesus Christ to ask for forgiveness of our sins (for we are ALL sinners, in God’s eyes), then how are we supposed to receive our *gifts* of a) forgiveness of sins and b) everlasting life? Just like we must GO to Hastings on that day to *receive* the gift of no fines, we must also GO to Jesus Christ to *receive* our *gifts* of forgiveness of sins and eternal life. All you have to do is start with this simple prayer and allow Jesus to come into your mind, heart and soul.

“Jesus, please make yourself real to me. I thank you for dying on the cross for me 1976+ years ago to save mankind from their sins. I acknowledge that I am a sinner in need of salvation. The type of salvation that only YOU can give! I humbly ask you to please come into my heart today and become my Lord & Savior. Please forgive me for all my sins and help me to REPENT of them. Help me to live a life that’s pleasing to you. Help me to spread your gospel of Salvation to others. And please help me find a righteous Christian who can full-water baptize me in your holy name. Amen”

If you said those words with all your heart, and believe them to be 100% true, and have gotten baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, then congratulations! You are now saved and a part of God’s family! And if you are STILL not “saved” at this point, I would highly encourage you to GET SAVED, for the time is short. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.

And remember….the people in hell today are there because they CHOSE to go there by rejecting Jesus Christ……They had many, many chances in their life to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ but instead, decided to live life their own way……now, they are paying DEARLY for it…….for ETERNITY……..please don’t become one of those people, folks! Please come to a saving knowledge of Jesus before it’s too late!!!!!!!

“He who believes and is baptized will be saved but he who does not believe will be condemned” [Mark 16:16]

What Is The True Gospel of Jesus Christ?

All men are sinners. “For all men have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God” [Romans 3:23]

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son [Jesus Christ], that whoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send his son [Jesus Christ] to condemn the world but that through Him [Jesus Christ] the world might be saved” [John 3: 16-17]

“He who believes in Him [Jesus Christ] is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the only begotten Son of God [Jesus Christ]” {John 3:18}

So essentially what this means is that over 1976+ years ago, God put his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for salvation/forgiveness of mankind’s sins. And on that Cross, Jesus Christ shed his holy blood (along with the water of life that gushed out of his side wound) in order to give us the “free gift” of *SALVATION* (forgiveness of sins, if we choose to receive that “free gift” in our hearts!) and the chance for everlasting life [eternity with God/Jesus Christ].

3 days later, Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead, just like he said he would do. There are SEVERAL eyewitness accounts, which record seeing Jesus AFTER he was resurrected from the dead. This would in fact PROVE that Jesus was the Son of God! And all these eyewitnesses were faced with martyrdom [death] FOR their eyewitness testimony, but not one of them recanted their faith (upon the threat of death)! NOT ONE

1 Corinthians 15:3-6
John 20:10-18
Matt 28:8-10
Luke 24:13-32
Luke 24:33-49
John 20:19-23
John 20:26-30
John 21:1-14
Matt 28:16-20
Luke 24:50-52
Acts 1:9-11

40 days later, in front of several witnesses, Jesus Christ ascended up to heaven to be on the right hand throne of God [the heavenly Father] and won victory over “sin and death” [hell/the Devil].

In other words, when Jesus died for all of mankind’s sins on the cross over 1976+ years ago, he provided a way for mankind to achieve *eternal life*, AWAY from the confines of eternal death/the lake of fire. But God [the heavenly Father] said in his holy divine book, the bible, that the ONLY way a person could achieve *eternal life* is to BELIEVE in Jesus Christ, pray for forgiveness of sins, acknowledge that they’re a sinner, accept Jesus Christ into their hearts as Lord & Savior, REPENT of their sins, become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and CONTINUE to obey the Lord throughout their day to day lives. So it’s a 7-part process.

Basically, when you become a Christian/”Saved”, you acknowledge that you’re a sinner in God’s eyes and that you NEED forgiveness of your sins. You thank Jesus Christ for his *free gift* of salvation on the cross, you pray for forgiveness of your sins, you accept Jesus as your personal Lord & Savior (God Almighty in the flesh), you REPENT of your sins, you become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, and then you “pick up your cross and follow him”.

That means to leave the old life behind. For example, if you used to drink a lot before accepting Jesus Christ in your heart, that means you give up drinking. If you used to be addicted to sex, drugs, pornography, etc., that means you give those things up and don’t do/partake of them anymore. [But don’t worry, because if God created the Earth & the Heavens, he can certainly help people overcome their addictions or things that draw people away from God!]

When you truly accept Jesus Christ into your heart, pray for forgiveness of your sins, allow him to become Lord & Savior, repent of your sins AND become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, your spirit is renewed in Christ and you start a New Life in Him. Therefore, you must separate yourselves from ALL worldly/sinful things (drinking, drugs, partying, greed, lust, pride, addiction(s), love of money, etc.). What this means is that, in order to become friends with God, you must become enemies of the world.

“Adulterers and Adulteresses, don’t you know that friendship with the world is enmity [hatred] toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God” [James 4:4]

Meaning, you must separate yourselves from the “ungodly pursuits” (money, self, globalism/“many-paths-to-enlightenment”-movement, pleasure) of the world and seek after the “pursuits” of Jesus (such as humility, servitude to God instead of self, kindness/forgiveness towards others, pleasure in serving God’s will).

But in order to live a true Christian life, we must first know the bible. If you don’t know the bible for yourself, the Devil (working through various people) will try to turn you on to “false doctrines” (the ones I talked about in my previous post) and will try to do everything in his power (even working through people close to you, like your own friends, family and even coworkers, for instance) to try to get you to lose your faith in Jesus Christ!

Jesus commands us to become baptized. When we get baptized, we receive the free *gift* of the Holy Spirit (which in turn, gives us the gift of spiritual discernment and/or conviction of sins). It is also represents the “ceremonial washing away of sins”.

“He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned” [Mark 16:16]

Because we now live in such a dark, depraved, fallen world, there’s many lost and restless souls out there, who feel like their life has no meaning or that try to fill their hearts with things other than God.

So once you become a true believer in Jesus Christ, you must “go out and make disciples [more believers in Jesus] among all nations” [Matthew 28:19]

God can’t let ANY sin into his heavenly kingdom. That’s why, if a person doesn’t accept Jesus Christ into their hearts by the end of their lives, that God can’t admit them into what the New Testament calls the heavenly city of “New Jerusalem” [Revelation chapters 21-22!] . They are “spiritually unclean” and God is a holy, divine, PURE God. When we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts AND get full-water-immersion baptized in his great, heavenly name, we are “made spiritually clean” in God’s eyes.

But if we reject Jesus Christ/do not acknowledge Him before our deaths in this life, then God [Jesus Christ] is going to judge us for each and every single sin we’ve ever committed over the TOTALITY of our LIFETIMES and send us to hell (whose fires will eventually be merged into the lake of fire), NO EXCEPTIONS, ***PERIOD!***

So PLEASE, people! Get right with Jesus TODAY! Time is running out.

Pray the following prayer:

“Lord Jesus, I’m a sinner. I pray to you for forgiveness of my sins and I pray for you to become my Lord & Savior. Please give me a new heart and a new mind. Please don’t let me fall victim to the “Apostasy”[doctrines other than what Jesus taught] going on in the Christian Church AND in the secular world today. And also, don’t ALLOW me to believe the world’s LIE that you aren’t God or that you’re not the ONLY way to salvation/heaven! Amen”.

And then get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ since Jesus commands it in Mark 16:16 “He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned”

And then you be rest assured that Jesus will NEVER blot out your name from The Book of Life talked about in Philippians 4:3 (his *record book* of faithful followers) and that you’ll get to live with Jesus forever in eternity!

And I know eternity is sort’ve scary to think about for some folks, as in “what would living FOREVER be like? Yikes!” but for those of us who get to enter eternity with God, we will enter “New Jerusalem” with glorified bodies (meaning, bodies that are “perfect” in God’s site: so I can only assume that to mean no wrinkles or age spots, or walking canes or glasses/contacts, or anything else that one would deem “imperfect”).

Oh and guys, trust me. There IS no “hidden catch” to salvation. You ask Jesus to come into your heart, you pray for forgiveness of your sins, you repent of (turn completely away from) your sins, you get FULL-WATER baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, you CONTINUE to obey the Lord in your lives……you’re saved…….and you no longer have to worry about being sent to the “fire that never quenches” (aka the fires of hell that MERGE INTO the lake of fire will become the “fire that never quenches”, which Jesus Christ describes as the “weeping and gnashing of teeth”, etc.)

One last thing I wanted to mention here real quick is that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to Salvation. Meaning, no other person, principle or creed is needed. JUST Jesus Christ alone! For Jesus said in John 14:6….

“I am the way, the truth and the light. No-one comes to the Father [Everlasting Life/Paradise] except by Me [Jesus Christ]” John 14:6

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” Acts 4:12
